Verhaeghe's hat trick inches Crunch closer in the division.

Overtime
0:09 SYR Verhaeghe (20), (unassisted)

Verhaeghe, in my opinion, merited a cup of coffee in Tampa in the second half of last season and he's done nothing but improve his stock since then. The guy's done nothing but produce since coming over to the Lightning organization after the Isles cut bait. On a similar note, Jan Rutta now has 2-2-4 in his first couple of games with the Crunch. The guy's a NHL defenseman, and he seems to be a nice depth piece after the trade deadline when rosters can be expanded.

Syracuse sneaks to within three points of the division lead with two games in hand on Rochester.

Shootout
CLE- Korostelev
SYR- NONE

Alex Barre-Boulet, Gabriel Dumont, and Carter Verheaghe were the game's three stars.

Syracuse surrendered a 6-on-4 goal with under a minute to go that ultimately cost them a point in the standings. That point accounts for the deficit between Syracuse and first place Rochester, although the Crunch hold two games in hand.
